Sigma has announced a new 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary lens, designed for the cameras with APS-C and Micro Four Thirds sensor. It is a second model (after 30mm f/1.4) designed for this system. We had to wait for it for more than one and a half years.
The optical system is based on 16 elements placed in 13 groups, among which we will find 2 asheric lenses and 5 low-dispersion lenses (FLD and SLD). The lens is of course supposed to offer the highest possible optical quality and focus within the whole frame.
